R.I.P. John Michael Snyder, Former NRA Editor, Police Adviser, Author and Second Amendment Activist
One of my dearest friends and colleagues, John M. Snyder, passed away on Sunday October 22, 2017 at the age of 79. He is survived by his loving wife Ling Snyder.
John was called “the dean of Washington gun lobbyists” by the Washington Post and New York Times. For 50 years he has defended American gun rights as an NRA editor, director of the Citizens Committee for the Right to Keep and Bear Arms and Second Amendment Foundation, and founder/director of www.GunRightsPolicies.org. He was also founder/manager of Telum Associates, LL.C, and the founder/chairman of the St. Gabriel Possenti Society, Inc.
John served on the boards of the National Association of Chiefs of Police and the American Federation of Police. He is the author of the book Gun Saint. he received his Bachelor of Arts and Master of Arts from the renowned Jesuit institution of higher learning, Georgetown University.
John Snyder contributed often to Conservative Base as a firearms and law enforcement expert and he will be sorely missed as a valuable source for news and commentary. One more thing: I’m so glad he lived to see his favorite candidate elected President of the United States. He worked hard to help get Trump elected. Thank you, John Michael Snyder.

John was a very dear trusted true friend. I am saddened by his loss. My condolences to Ling and their family, loved ones, friends and admirers… may his memory be eternal and may John rest in peace.
Thank you, Joseph. I sent Ling the link to this story and I’m certain she’ll read your comments.

John Michael Snyder was well known to me and the members of Montgomery Citizens for a Safer Maryland (MCSM). On many occasions he attended and spoke at MCSM meetings in Silver Spring. In 2000 presented the St. Gabriel Possenti Award medal to – at that time – Maryland Delegate Carmen Amedori at her office in Annapolis, Maryland.
The Gun Rights movement has lost another pioneering member, but rest assured he has mentored and educated many others. Thank you John.
